NU Talk is a student-run TEDx-style event devoted to sharing the scientific ideas, passions, and experiences of Northeastern University undergraduates. NU Talk began in 2015 as a collaborative effort between Northeastern University Biology Club and other College of Science academic organizations to provide a platform for student speakers. Past conferences have explored topics ranging from the influence of human gut microbiota on mental health to responsible oyster farming in a series of short, but powerful talks. The continual support of the Northeastern University science community has since attracted a growing audience from many disciplines united by their curiosity and eagerness to engage with new ideas and people. This year, NU Talk 2017 will feature a roster of presenters expanded to include engineers and health care professionals and is certain to inspire, motivate, and spark conversation.  


Our mission is to get STEM students involved and excited in each other’s work. We hope to create opportunities for growth, help students find direction, and empower students to collaborate across disciplines.
